I recommended a single partition, above. For initial use and final layout determination.

FAQ 4.7 -- therefore the OpenBSD Project -- recommends partitioning as a best practice, for reasons of security, stability, speed, integrity, and size. It too, includes the recommendation of single-large-partition, prior to production.

I have systems that are permanently configured with a single large partition, including the laptop I am using to type this. But none of these systems are exposed directly to the Internet, and none run production services. Systems that run services, or are exposed, or both, are partitioned.
